Intel today added three N2xxx series ultra-low voltage products to the official pricelist. New processors have N2805, N2810 and N2910 model numbers, and they are fabricated on 22nm technology. Despite the fact that they are listed in the "ULV Celeron M" section, their processor numbers follow naming conventions for Atom mobile products. Also, one of these "Celeron Ms" has 4 CPU cores and no Hyper-Threading, which suggests that they could be based on ValleyView core, or ValleyView-M, to be more precise.
The price list contains very basic specifications for all three parts. According to them, N2800 series, which is currently comprised of N2805 and N2810 SKUs, has 2 CPU cores and 1 MB of last level cache. N2900 series includes N2910 chip, and it doubles the number of cores to 4 and the size of cache to 2 MB. None of the microprocessors support Hyper-Threading technology. The N2805 and N2810 operate at 1.46 GHz and 2 GHz respectively. The quad-core N2910 is clocked at 1.6 GHz. It's not obvious if the processors support Burst mode or not. Compared to previous Atom generation, the N2910 should provide very significant CPU performance boost. The N2810 may also run on a par, or be faster than the N2800 "CedarView" chip, as significantly improved IPC should compensate for the lack of Hyper-Threading feature.
N2805, N2810 and N2910 CPUs are priced at $132 each. That price is about 3 times more expensive than the price of currently available CedarView Atom microprocessors. Known details of new N2xxx parts are provided below:
|Model||Cores||Threads||Frequency||Last level cache||Price|
|N2805||2||2||1.46 GHz||1 MB||$132|
|N2810||2||2||2.00 GHz||1 MB||$132|
|N2910||4||4||1.60 GHz||2 MB||$132|
